Wednesday 21st February, 2018 – The Antigua Public Utilities Authority is advising its subscribers to ignore pop up messages being sent to their mobile phones stating that recipients have won an iPhone X.
In a statement, APUA said the pop-up messages have been circulating stating “Today is your lucky day! You are one of the 10 randomly selected users who will receive this gift. Apple iPhone X.”
APUA says the information is untrue. The message also states that winners are selected by their IP addresses and must complete a short and anonymous survey. APUA Telecommunications Business Unit says it does not know what entity the information has originated from.
However, in the interest of internet safety, the authority is strongly urging recipients to not interact with the messages.
